Capturing HDV content via Firewire is a pretty basic task in this day and age. If it’s been a while since you’ve done any kind of system refresh (back up, wipe, reinstall OS and apps) then you may be due. A good refresh of the system will bring it back to “new” condition and would hopefully eliminate issues caused by left-behind software that was supposedly removed two years ago when you downloaded the shareware software that didn’t quite work. Between OS patches, application updates, and all the other crud that accumulates on your hard drive over time, this would be your best bet in making everything work properly. Just make sure you’re not using outdated software that may have problems with newer operating systems, and vice-versa.
Best of luck!
